Hi evilcowgod!

You can download riched20.dll from HERE. It is a compressed zip file, so once you download it you will need to extract the riched20.dll to your C:\Windows\system32 directory.

Do you have your XP CD handy?

If so, place it in your CD ROM drive and follow the instructions below:
  • Go to START-->RUN and type sfc /scannow (note the space between sfc and /scannow)
  • Once the blue bar goes away, reboot your computer.
SFC - System File Checker, retrieves the correct version of the file from %Systemroot%\System32\Dllcache or the Windows installation source files, and then replaces the incorrect file.

I've heard of trojans that destroy or edit the riched functions so that you can't install new software that will be able to remove them. They are used during the install process to handle the EULA agreements and to enter the key codes, so destroying their function will disable new installations.
